18 January 2019 - The Bread & Roses Theatre

Though we learn of Clement Attlee's immense achievements, we never get to truly understand a man who led a social, political and economic revolution - but that might just be the point.


The Daughter-in-Law

4 star rating for this show

16 January 2019 - Arcola Theatre

Jack Gamble's fine and riveting production gets another well-deserved outing, though the larger auditorium imposes some restrictions on the overall appreciation of the piece.

13 January 2019 - Hope Theatre

Sensitive and enabling direction and a highly credible, well-written script, allow Jay Parsons to describe a recognisably real and endearing character who "doesn't fit in".


The War of the Worlds

4 star rating for this show

11 January 2019 - New Diorama Theatre

A cleverly-worked, entertaining and enjoyable production from Rhum & Clay, taking its lead from the 1938 radio drama of the same title, and showing 'fake news' to be nothing new.


Two of a Kind

2 star rating for this show

10 January 2019 - The Bread & Roses Theatre

Feels too brief to convey its main purpose clearly, employs a rather overused structure that unnecessarily telegraphs doom, and is marred by tedious and sometimes abrupt pacing.
